On the Road - Day 231

Here we are North of Chicago, about 1/2 way to Madison, stopping to eat dinner.  We are literally above the road.

Packing - Day 230

We have packed everything under the sun onto the great MiniVan.  So much stuff!  CrabMama decided to pack everything into big RubberMade bins, which should be interesting.

Constantly Working - Day 229

11:00 at night and we are still working.  We can't stop.  Vacation 2 days away.

Reaching Out - Day 229

CrabMama doesn't really like Hosta, but the kids do.  I, honestly don't care one way or another.  But, they make nice pictures.

Biking - Day 227

We took a large number of pictures on Saturday, some of them on bikes.  CrabGirl suggested these shots, which turned out pretty good.

Another Plant - Day 226

CrabMama says that this may be garlic.  I have no idea.

Turning the Heel - Day 225

CrabMama turned the heel!  Isn't it beautiful!

Plant - Day 224

Ice Cream - Day 223

This doesn't need much explaination, eh?

Birdfeeder - Day 222

This is our new, homemade bird feeder.  The picture sucks, but, you get the idea.

Flowers - Day 221

We took a walk through the recreation area a few miles away from our house.  I lost my lens cap.  Crab Boy found it.  There weren't many photo opportunities.  Then there were.  So, I would say that it started out with some suck, but ended on an up note.  Here are two pictures, one taken by me (top), and one taken by Crab Mama (bottom).  I like hers better.  The colors and textures are just better.

Cat - Day 220

We went to a party.  I was taking pictures.  I used the flash.  The kitty freaked.  Freaked kitty.

CrabGirl Eats - Day 219

This is a combination of two pictures taken in the last week - CrabGirl + Dandelion.  It was such a wonderful expression that I couldn't resist.

CrabBoy - Day 218

Wow. I am running out of ideas, I guess. Or, I am extremely busy.  Whatever.  So, here is a picture of CrabBoy again....

These Colors Don't Run - Day 227

... but they sometimes fade and rip.  This is totally ripped off from The Photo Rookie, who took a picture of the Canadian flag today.

PrePear - Day 126

We have pre-pears! I didn't really expect that the trees would ever actually produce fruit. Now they are getting little buds of pre-fruit deals.

A storm is a-comin' - Day 215

On my home is tried to stop a few times to get a picture like this.  I love it when you can see the rain in the distance.

Full of Seeds - Day 213

I need a better depth of field lens.  Maybe I should shell out another few hundreds of dollars?

A Rare Sight - Day 212

I really wish that I could have spent more than 10 seconds on this shot.  If I had had more time, I would have focused and played with the depth of field and other thing.

Hotel - Day 211

This is a view from my hotel room.  Not the best picture, but it gives you a good idea of where I spent a fair bit of my time over the last many days.
